HEFCE: The future of quality assessment in Higher Education

View the consultation here.

Read the EPC’s response here.


The higher education funding bodies in England, Wales and Northern Ireland invited views on the future of quality assessment in higher education. This first stage sought to attain views on the
broad purpose, principles and parameters of any future arrangements.

A second stage of the review, in the summer of 2015, addressed more detailed options, design and implementation issues. Each funding body decided how to proceed once the discussion and consultation had been completed.

The deadline for responses was noon on Friday 27 February 2015.
